Welcome Ajantha Mendis

I will start my write Up with some points-

1)Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Vvs Laxman are known as fantastic four on Indian Cricket. All together They have made 30,000 + run in Test cricket.

2) Indian Batsmen are simply masters against spin bowling . I can give Instance

of two Occasions.

Shane Warne is undoubtedly the all time best spinner In the world. But Indian Batsmen were always a big mystery to him. After getting testing time from even

Indian Tale ender, he made comments that

“ The Indians play spin even in sleeping.”

Pakistani great Abdul kadir told his experience of one India-Pakistan series against

Gavaskar and VengSarkar. While he tried to do his major weapon Google , even

From Non Striking end both Gavaskar an vengsarkar were shouting “ GOOGLE.”

He was frustrated. So The biggest test of a spinner to play against Indian Batsman.

We know Murali very well. But I am spell bound to See Ajanta Mendis. Srilanka

Is champion to provide natural unconventional talent. Sanath Jayasuriya , Muthiah MuraliDharan, Lasith Malinga have already proved and now new addition is Ajantha Mendis.

He is a new discovery of world cricket. Now, we are starting to forget essence of Test cricket.

Now this game is become the business of the Lalit Modis. But Natural Talent like Mendis is Fresh Air in world Cricket.

He is an off spinner . But he can equally give Google and Doosra . Most important is

His bowling grip and he hold it like Carom. So his carom grip is getting popular.

Even four greats of India can’t read him.

We have great expectation from this wonderful discovery of the world cricket.
